An announcement today by General Motors revealed that the auto giant is constructing a new “coast to coast” network of electric vehicle chargers expected to arrive at Pilot and Flying J truck stops by the end of 2023. The chargers will be managed by EVGo and will include charging speeds of up to 350kW, canopies to protect customers from the elements, and pull through capabilities for vehicles pulling trailers. This will be the first charger network owned by GM, which doesn’t have its own proprietary network of chargers like Tesla or Volkswagen.
GM CEO Mary Barra shed light on this decision in a statement. “We are committed to an all-electric, zero-emissions future, and ensuring that the right charging infrastructure is in place is a key piece of the puzzle. With travel centers across North America, Pilot Company is an ideal collaborator to reach a broad audience of EV drivers.”
